After writing the ideal path for a branching scenario, write the mistakes and consequences. These create the alternate paths in the scenario.
When writing branching scenarios, it’s easiest to draft the ideal path from start to finish first, before writing mistakes and consequences.
In this post, I share links on writing better dialogue, sample projects for inspiration, and useful tools for different kinds of learning.
This is my process for planning before writing a branching scenario, including creating a summary, outline, and list of mistakes.
In branching scenarios, use a combination of immediate and delayed consequences and feedback, depending on the learners and goals.
Converting multiple choice questions to scenario-based questions can increase the difficulty, measure higher level thought, and provide relevant context.
Instead of boring “click next” compliance training, engage learners and give them a reason to seek out and understand the policies.
In this post, I share links on estimating development time in higher ed, branching scenarios, and new tools for whiteboarding and image generation.
What if you could create compliance training that learners actually cared about? Use a worst case scenario to show the “why” behind the rules.
In his book Short Sims: A Game Changer, Clark Aldrich provides a system for creating engaging, interactive learning experiences quickly.
